Good People has a great cast, it stars James Franco and Kate Hudson. Even with a cast like that they made a pretty bad movie, Rotten Tomatoes gives it 11%, which is far from where you want it to be. Even still this is a chance to watch a train wreck that stars some of the best actors around. How often do you have the chance to watch Tom Wilkinson in a complete piece of shit? Almost never. So take your chances and watch this when it comes out on Christmas day.
The Village was M. Night Shyamalan’s 2004 film about a group of people living in what seems to be the 1800’s. They’re limited to a small area, a clearing, that is surrounded by a dense forest. This isn’t just any forest, it holds dangerous beasts that are very scary and very spiky. Of course since it’s M. Night Shamalamadingdong there’s going to be a twist, so no surprise there. But it’s still worth the watch knowing that at some point you’re going to be “surprised”. This flick becomes available for streaming on December 11th.
